What is this thing? A BlackBerry 9980?

September 13th, 2011

Today i learned from a Chinese website which appeared an article showing a mysterious BlackBerry 9980. It seems to be some variant of the BlackBerry Bold 9900, yet the design is very different. I don’t want to use the word “ugly”, but the design is not for everyone.

Whether this is a genuine BlackBerry Device or some fake model, we don’t know. According to the information available, the supposed BlackBerry 9980 is just a BlackBerry Bold 9900 in a completely new design. The battery is the same as the Bold 9900′s and this new device also runs on BlackBerry OS 7. Here are a few more pictures:
